Mrs. Madeline Corsini

Position: 
Art

Mrs. Corsini joined the faculty at St. Stephen School in 2011.  Mrs. Corsini teaches art to all the students grades Pre-K - 8. 
The students experience art at a deeper level.  They read about art, learn about famous artists and their works of art, discuss art and learn about other cultures.  Art class also includes the use of different media and techniques, creating expressive visual images.  Mrs. Corsini also manages the Poster Club which meets once a month.
Mrs. Corsini received a Bachelor of Science degree with a Major in Graphic Design from the State University College at Buffalo.  She also holds NYS Teachers Certification in the Visual Arts (Birth – Grade 12) and is a member of the National Society of Decorative Painters. 
 
Community activities include the local chapter of the Buffalo Snowbirds where she holds the office of Secretary, 2011/2012.  Most importantly, Mrs. Corsini shares her talent by painting memory boxes that are donated to local hospitals for parents who have lost a child at birth. The boxes are used to keep any mementos belonging to the child.
